we know the camera models...

We know their specs; but how about their lenses? How does one find out with lenses are great and which lenses stink?

Thanks. Actual tests would be great, though.

www.photozone.de is the place to go. Terrific, dull, impartial reviews of most of the kit you can actually afford.

Thanks, Mark. I didn't know that Voigt had this lens: http://www.photozone.de/8Reviews/len...ikon/index.htm

I wonder if it's 9 blades or 10. 10 would produce better bokeh, yes?
